Album Notes
Few musicians can express a sweetness and honesty in every word that is sung. Inga's vocal improvisation and stylistic breadth in the jazz tradition shine on her debut album, Learning How To Fly. Together with Trio 14 -- Mike Raynor, Ryan Garcia & Clint Iwanicha -- and Linda Vanasupa providing the subtle touches, Inga Swearingen embraces each song in a way all her own.

Inga has performed on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion over the years since 2003. Past shows can be heard via streaming audio on Prairie Home's website. Inga also appears in Prairie Home's 30th Anniversary DVD.

Great Stuff
Fun, exciting, moving, deep, colorful, smooth: Like a creamy roller coaster at sunset. Inga, please send us more!

Inga Owned the Performing Art Center Stage
Wow....I heard Inga at the PAC in SLO when she sang on the Garrison Keillor's radio show. She is the next Ella F. I can't wait for her next CD in which I hope that she has more songs on it.

Don Davis

A voluptuous vista of vibrant vitality. Thank you Inga,Trio 14 and..Linda.
What a delightfully produced juxtaposition and regal rendering of Standards and Jazz Greats:I was proud and privileged to dine with Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Hoagy, Errol Garner, and then came the surprising finale, "Speak Low" (Kurt Weill-Ogden Nash); sweet dessert and pungent coffee.Delicious!


The production of the cd is good. And how the music and arrangements are is excellent. I am excited to find a good modern jazz artist. This cd shows off Inga's voice wonderfully.

Steven Marx

The next best thing to hearing and seeing her live.
Her voice bounces my brain around in my skull.

Deborah Deuss

I fell in love with Inga's voice the moment I heard it-both the tone quality and her style. Each song on this CD is like a perfect little package, the band complimenting her easy going style. I hope this is only the first of many CD's!

Barbara Sutcliffe

Classic jazz at its best!
If you're interested in hearing jazz as it should be sung, buy this CD. Classic jazz tunes done to perfection by an artist who is at the top of her game. Inga, please keep on singing and make another CD. Terrific!


This music is classic sophistication mixed with new-style innovation. Her talent shines in each track on the album and captivates me more and more. The timeless jazz style is enriched in her new songs as well as the old. This is definitely and album for any collection. Astonishing work!
